Availability of Apple’s forthcoming iPad may be limited when it launches later this month, due to an "unspecified production problem" that could restrict the number of shipped units to just 300,000.
Apple Insider and others are reporting today on this one analyst’s warning that unspecified production issues could cause lower than expected numbers of iPads to be available on its expected release later this month, or even cause a delay of a month for the release. .
Wow – this is my least favorite Apple rumor in a long time. Now that it’s March 1, we are down to just a few eek wait for an iPad if the original sixty days from announcement (which was made on 1/27) is still on.
If there are limited numbers available, I wonder what the scramble will be like for pre-orders and lines at stores etc. Really hope this rumor proves unfounded.
